WVWriters Conference

It's almost here. The West Virginia Writers Conference will be June 12, 13, & 14.

I have registered for Friday classes and the Banquet on Saturday.

For more information about the conference you can go here.

It takes place every year at Cedar Lakes, WV, which just happens to be only a few miles down the road from where I live. My family reunion is on Saturday, tho, so I will miss out on Saturday's classes. Next year I'm moving our reunion to another weekend!

It's a beautiful place to have a conference. You can stroll around the grounds, walk among the cedars and the small lakes or walk across the covered bridge. You can gather around the campfire at night and you can enjoy nightly entertainment. But, best of all, you can attend classes on writing and poetry.

You can enjoy the company of people who share your same dreams and ambitions. Rub elbows with published authors and bid on items at the silent auction table. This year I'm donating a hand made teddy bear for the silent auction. He has his own writing tablet and pencil.

At the banquet on Saturday night, presenters will announce the winners of the WVWriting Contest.

If you can't make it this year, maybe we'll see you next year.
Send in stories for their annual writing contest in the spring and maybe you'll win 1st, 2nd, 3rd or honorable mention.

Only 1 week from tomorrow! WVWriters Conference at Cedar Lakes, WV.


  1. Have a wonderful time, Miss Janet. I can't wait to hear all about it.

  2. Sounds like a fun conference and a beautiful place for it. Enjoy.


  3. It sounds like a wonderful conference! I've never been to one~they are always so far away from where I live. I know that many writers think that they are invaluable and get a lot out of them.

    You commented on my blog about writing contest~the ACFW Gensis was the first one I've ever entered. I think it was a good experience and I appreciated getting comments from the judges about the writing. You are right that it would be great to get more feedback from editors when they look at our work!


Thank you for your comments. I love comments!
